And a Happy Birthday to Elvis - though I doubt he's aware of this particular sideline! All good wishes and thanks to him though.
This rare outing on his birthday is marked firstly by Bruce announcing it to the crowd at the start of the first encore just before "The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes" and then by Jake Riviera coming onto the stage to announce the escape of a gorilla from a nearby zoo before Elvis appears in a gorilla suit (shades of the "Monkey To Man " video to come in October 2004).
Otherwise, apart from the Mae Vince song first recorded in 1958 by Art Neville, "Cha Dooky Doo" which is a bit of a throwaway song at the end of the concert and a slight glitch in "The Beat" the setlist is pretty standard and follows the usual paths seen and heard previously. Another lovely audience recording received from the good guys in the U.S. by me in the mid to late 80s and sounding as fresh today as it was in 1982.
Lineage : TDK D90 normal cassette > Nakamichi DR3 ( no dolby) > NAD 660 CDR > EAC > Nero Platinum for track separation and pitch adjustment > TLH > FLAC > you
